A charming family home, which was formerly a village school, has come to market with a guide price of £420,000.

The stone-built, detached property is located at Hardhaugh, Warden, just under three miles away from Hexham, and is surrounded by open countryside and attractive gardens to the rear.

The property has been "sympathetically updated and is in good order throughout", retaining much of its "charm and character".

Estate agents, Pattinsons, say that having previously been a single-storey building, the property has been refurbished to now sit across two floors, making it a "surprisingly spacious" family home.

The property's entrance hall leads into the living room, which has double glazed windows to the rear and side, timber flooring, inset multi-fuel stove, fitted shelving and double glazed French windows to the rear garden.

The kitchen/diner enjoys a double glazed window to the front, a range of fitted wall and base units, and a stainless steel single drainer sink unit with mixer taps and two bowls.

Bedroom four/study is a good-sized room with a double glazed window to the front and a wash hand basin, while the utility room has a double glazed window to the side, oil boiler, tiled floor, and fitted wall and base units. 
It is also plumbed for a washing machine and has a door to the garden.

The ground floor also includes a bathroom with a panelled bath and shower over, and a separate WC.

The first floor hosts three bedrooms, all offering eaves storage cupboards.

Bedroom one has double glazed windows to two sides and a cupboard housing a water tank, while bedroom two enjoys double glazed Velux windows.

Bedroom three has double glazed Velux windows, eaves storage cupboards, and access to a large loft storage area in the eaves.

The first floor also houses a bathroom with a panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin, tiled surrounds and a low-level WC.

Externally, the property boasts a "large driveway" with "established shrubs and trees bordering the garden".

The garden is divided into "rooms" with a pathway leading to a detached garage, which could also be converted into a workshop or for other uses.

There are sections with established flower beds, lawns, shrubs and trees.

The bottom of the garden could make a "good-sized kitchen garden".
A kitchen garden is a small garden, typically located near a home, that is used to grow fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs for use in cooking and preparing meals.

The property is offered with oil-fired central heating and double glazing.
